The Cheetah Chase
"POWERFUL...A marvelous story with a wonderfully appealing heroine... Absolutely smashing."
When investigative journalist and dedicated preservationist Nick Hunter dies from a scorpion sting on his isolated cheetah preserve in northeastern Kenya, Jazz Jasper feels that a remarkably clever murder has been committed. Especially when she learns that the lethal specimen is an imported Sahara scorpion not indigenous to the region.
The search for the truth about Nick's death leads to an exclusive white suburb of Nairobi. From there, Jazz embarks on a sweeping adventure that takes her into the desert, to a Saudi hunting camp, and into a mountain cave where present-day Africans live as they did thousands of years ago. For Jazz it is a journey from which there may be no return....
"A FAST-PACED, SUSPENSEFUL NOVEL...Stalked by lions and threatened by the harshness of the desert, every part of Jazz's journey is full of dangers of the wild."
